UEFA Champions League 2021 Betting Favorites

Tue 19 October 2021 | 9:04

The trend for the last few years of the UEFA Champions League is for teams with major football stars and hefty pockets to reach the finals stages of the league. Bettors who have noticed that tendency can gain some advantage for their future Champions League bets.

While the chances for an outsider team to end up as the winner of the 2021 Champions League are not that high, there are a few underappreciated teams that have the actual chance to lead to unexpected outcomes and end up as winners.

Having a small number of outsiders with a good potential for a big win makes futures betting a lot more interesting for bettors. If you still have not decided on the team to support and place money on, we will let you in on everyone’s favorites for winning the UEFA Champions League this year. Since betting is not all about futures, we will also cover favorites for bets like top scorer and teams to advance to the league’s finals. You can also base your betting decisions on

soccer predictions and analysis

that may help you pick the outright winner for the title. 

Champions League Winner Favorites

Let us start with the list of teams that the majority of sportsbooks have determined as the favorites with the biggest potential to end up as winners of the league. First off is Paris Saint-Germain, which comes as no surprise as the star-studded team has front players like Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Lionel Messi. 

In addition, PSG has also secured itself pretty high winning chances thanks to strong players like Gigio Donnarumma and Sergio Ramos at the back. As the team is an obvious favorite for the outright winner of the 2021 UEFA Champions League, you will not be able to find very generous odds on the team. Despite its great potential, however, the team has failed to win the Championship several times and one could never be certain if a similar outcome is to be revealed. 

Another team that is among the favorites for winning the league this year is Manchester City. The only new addition to the team was Jack Grealish but Manchester City has shown a great performance during last season’s all four competitions. This ranks them among the favorites across numerous sportsbooks offering odds on the 2021 UEFA Championship League.

Chelsea is also a potential winner that is favored by bookmakers, although it has lower odds than the aforementioned teams. Chelsea’s manager, Thomas Tuchel, is known for leading two different teams to the final stages of the previous two seasons. This is one of the reasons why bookmakers have determined Chelsea as one of the favorites for this season. 

If you check the odds for the outright winner of the championship, you will also notice that Manchester United is another team favored by bookmakers. The predictions for the team are for Man U to finish as the top team in Group F and advance to the finals thanks to top players like Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo. 

As Carlo Ancelotti has already taken Real Madrid to the final of the Champions League, with the team ultimately winning the title in 2017, his return has made Real Madrid another favorite for the winning title this season. Nothing is too certain with Real Madrid, however, which is why it is not the top pick of bookmakers for this year's UEFA Championship League. 

Other Betting Types Favorites for the 2021 Champions League

Taking into consideration factors like the budgets of teams and depth quality, there are about seven to eight teams that sportsbooks favor as finalists in the Champions League. In the previous 10 finals, a total of eleven clubs have reached the final stages. Among these finalists, the only clubs who have repeated the fate of playing for the win are Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, and Juventus. 

Almost all of the clubs mentioned above are favorites for this season’s finals. The only exception is Juventus as it will face the challenges of dealing with the results of Christiano Ronaldo leaving the team. 

As for the top scorers of this season, several players are favored by bookies. Erling Haaland won this title the previous season and thanks to him scoring six out of ten goals during the group stages, he is one of the best choices for winning the top scorer title. Many may be tempted to bet on Christiano Ronaldo but it is still unclear how many of the Championship League games he will participate in as his new club manages his playtime. Other favorites for the title include Romelu Lukaku and Karim Benzema, playing for Chelsea and Real Madrid respectively. While the final choice is yours to make, you can take into account these predictions and choose whether to place your money on this season’s favored teams and players.
